        British Ornithology:

      London: Printed for the Author by Stephen Couchman,, 1811–13. Being the History with a coloured representation of every known Species of British Birds. Assisted by several eminent ornithologists. 2 volumes in 1, octavo (230 x 146 mm). Near-contemporary tan calf, titles to green sheep label to spine, fully gilt in compartments, single gilt rule to covers, double gilt rule to turn-ins. Frontispiece and 95 engraved plates handcoloured by Graves. A little rubbing to extremities, slight bumps to tips, head of front board lightly faded, couple of small scratches to boards, colour slightly smudged to 3 plates, small tear to plate 17, colour to plates extremely clear and bright; an excellent copy. First edition of the first two volumes of Graves's Birds, the third volume of which was published first in 1821 by W. & S. Graves as part of the second edition. The plates for this book were originally intended to be used by William Curtis, the renowned botanist and entomologist, the fourth and fifth volumes of whose Flora Londinensis Graves edited. Unfortunately Curtis died in 1799 before this work could come to fruition, presumably prompting Graves to publish this work himself. This copy with hand numbered pages and a hand written index bound in at rear dated "4/7/49", with occasional helpful marginalia directing the reader to relevant plates. A richly illustrated and beautifully coloured book.

        BEFORE THE MOST NOBLE AND RIGHT HONORABLE THE LORDS COMMISSIONERS OF APPEALS IN PRIZE CAUSES. HEROINE, ROBERT HARWOOD, MASTER...

      London, 1811. [4],[4],8,[3]pp. Large folio. Dbd. Very good. Four documents together, all briefs before the Admiralty Prize Court in London relating to the ship, Heroine, and its seizure and salvage at Antigua in 1805. Such briefs were printed in very small numbers for the use of the litigants only, and are extremely rare. Present here are the briefs of appellants and respondents, and two briefs of evidence. The Heroine was seized by a French privateer while on a voyage from London to St. Kitts in the Windward Islands. The French put a prize crew on and sent the ship on to Guadeloupe, but due to poor navigation, the boat was instead shipwrecked on a rock off the British island of Antigua. The British crew, still aboard, managed to salvage the vessel and bring it into St. John's, where they claimed it as a salvage. They were awarded the ship, but were then sued by the British owners, who wanted the ship returned. Six years later the British court found against the owners and awarded the ship to salvagers. The documents provide a detailed account of the tangled case, and in so doing give a good picture of Caribbean commerce at the time.

        Nangaku Bumpo^ TEKURABE GAFU

Yellow covers, string-bound, fukuro-toji, printed paper title label. See Mitchell 324-5 for more on this bibliographically complex book. Resembles his "B" example in one volume with alternative title of the KAIDO KYOKA AWASE, with which it is pictorially identical, save that this variant issue is printed with the key blocks only, black and white. Hard to establish a chronology of the various issues as they all have the same colophon, but one would think this to be a later issue. There is a subsidiary colophon glued to the inner back cover, listing not only Fukui Genjiro of Kyoto but also Fukui Konosuke and the Fukui publishing house in Doshin, Ise. Fair to good impressions. A wonderful collaboration from these two great artists, alternating their designs in succession. Quite an unusual book. The b+w prnting and change of printer/publishers points up the enormous complexity of Japanese bibliography. Overall good original condition.

        The Art of Preserving All Kinds of Animal and Vegetable Substances for Several Years. A Work Published by Order of the French Minister of the Interior. Translated from the French

      London for Black, Parry, and Kingsbury, booksellers to the Hon. East-India Company 1811 - Duodecimo (176 × 103 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments, marbled endpapers, double line rules to boards gilt, blue speckled edges. Folding plate. Contemporary armorial bookplate of William Middleton Esq. Some wear to extremities, only minor toning and offsetting to contents. An excellent, unsophisticated copy. First English language edition of the first book on canning as a food preservation technique. Louis Appert (1749-1841) "learned the art of cooking from his father, who was an hotelier. He worked at first in the service of the Duke of Deux-Ponts and was officier de bouche to the Princess of Forbach. In 1780 he established himself in business as a confectioner in the Rue des Lombards in Paris. The Directory government offered a prize of 12,000 francs for the discovery of a process to preserve the food destined for the army. Appert perfected a sterilization method which was named after him - appertisation. In 1804 he built a factory at Massy (on land where peas and beans had been cultivated) and started up the production of bottled preserved foods. In 1810 the government officially recognized his discovery and awarded him the prize. In the same year, Appert published L'Art de conserver pendant, which generously made his process available to all. Moreover, his work was republished in 1811 and 1813 under the title Livre de tous les menages. The fall of the Empire ruined him but in 1822, by which time others had become rich on his discovery, the state recognized his achievement in conceiving the process by granting him a small income. In the premises which were then allowed him, he pursued his experiments on the clarification of wines, the purification of bone gelatin, preservation in cans, etc, but he subsequently died in poverty" (The Concise Larousse Gastronomique, p. 34).

        Africa

      London: Caldell & Davies, 1811. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 18 1/8 x 39 1/4". This lovely map reflects early 19th-century European knowledge of the continent of Africa. Towns and ports are labeled, and the map is annotated throughout with references to local tribes. Relief is shown by hachures, particularly at the Kong Mountains, which, according to the map, are "supposed to extend across the continent." Below are areas labeled "Unknown Parts." The island of Madagascar appears in sharp relief at the lower left of the map, right above the title and scale. The map is in good condition with some wear to the center fold. Slight tears and chips in the margin not affecting the image. John Pinkerton (1758-1826) was a prominent English mapmaker known for his large and impeccably detailed maps. In this manner, his work marks a turning point from the earlier emphasis on decoration toward a greater emphasis on information. This map is a fine example of his work.

        BEFORE THE MOST NOBLE AND RIGHT HONORABLE THE LORDS COMMISSIONERS OF APPEALS IN PRIZE CAUSES. HEROINE, ROBERT HARWOOD, MASTER.

      London. . 1811 - [4],[4],8,[3]pp. Large folio. Dbd. Very good. Four documents together, all briefs before the Admiralty Prize Court in London relating to the ship, Heroine, and its seizure and salvage at Antigua in 1805. Such briefs were printed in very small numbers for the use of the litigants only, and are extremely rare. Present here are the briefs of appellants and respondents, and two briefs of evidence. The Heroine was seized by a French privateer while on a voyage from London to St. Kitts in the Windward Islands. The French put a prize crew on and sent the ship on to Guadeloupe, but due to poor navigation, the boat was instead shipwrecked on a rock off the British island of Antigua. The British crew, still aboard, managed to salvage the vessel and bring it into St. John's, where they claimed it as a salvage. They were awarded the ship, but were then sued by the British owners, who wanted the ship returned. Six years later the British court found against the owners and awarded the ship to salvagers. The documents provide a detailed account of the tangled case, and in so doing give a good picture of Caribbean commerce at the time.

        Über Inhalt und Vortrag, Entstehung und Schicksale des königlichen Buchs, eines Werkes von der Regierungskunst als Ankündigung einer Übersetzung nebst Probe aus dem Türkisch-Persisch-Arabischen des Waassi Aly Dschelebi.

      Berlin, gedruckt auf eigene Kosten (bey Johann Friedrich Weiss), in Kommission der Nicolaischen Buchhandlung, 1811. - 8vo. (2), 214 pp. Modern marbled boards with printed spine label. Edges sprinkled. First edition. - A scholarly account, and partial German translation, of Ali Vasi Celebi's "Humayunnama" - a Turkish translation of the Persian "Anvar-i suhayli" (Light of Canopus), completed before 1543, which is in itself an adaptation of "Kalila wa Dimna", or the "Fables of Bidpai", a collection of animal fables with didactic overtones designed to illustrate wise conduct. - The oriental scholar H. F. Diez (1751-1817) had trained as a jurist but, bored by his administrative occupation, soon left the Prussian civil service and in 1784 went to Constantinople as Frederick the Great's chargé d'affaires at the Sublime Porte. He was ennobled after only two years of successful diplomatic service. Recalled in 1790 on the eve of the Russo-Turkish War, the self-confessed Turkophile soon retired to a life of an independent scholar and book collector in Berlin. His orientalist publications captured the attention of the learned world, and he moved in the circles of Goethe, Gleim, and Alexander von Humboldt, though largely outside the contemporary tradition of academic oriental studies. "Between his years in Constantinople and his death, Diez pursued his Orientalist studies with extraordinary energy. A string of books authored by Diez and mostly self-published appeared in 1811 [.] Even if many aspects of his scholarly life are almost forgotten, his merits, especially for the development of Turkish studies, are noteworthy [.] His works, almost completely printed at his own expense, reflect his interest in the origins of Asian cultures, literatures, and politics, as well as everyday issues and ethics" (J. Gonnella et al. [ed.], The Diez Albums [Leiden, 2017], p. 58, 76). - A fine copy, well-preserved throughout. Chauvin II, p. 49, no. 70. Ruppert 756. Goedeke VII, 589, 61, 1.
